911 call system was blown by Bloomberg

From NY1:

As promised, the de Blasio administration on Wednesday released a review of the city's new 911 call-taking system, and two other government watchdogs are sounding an alarm over how the project was managed. NY1's Courtney Gross filed the following report.

Three reviews of the city's long-delayed and over-budget 911 system were released all in one day Wednesday.

"We brought all of the agencies involved together, had a very intense 60-day process, as we promised, and restructured every aspect of this project," said First Deputy Mayor Anthony Shorris.

"The people who were in charge of this system truly blew it," said City Comptroller Scott Stringer.

"That is government malpractice at best," said Mark Peters, commissioner of the city's Department of Investigation.

Essentially, all of the reports claim the Bloomberg administration was asleep at the switch.

Actually that is wishful thinking.Mini Mayor was most likely profiting from all this.That, more than likely , was why he worked so hard to convince us that we NEEDED him for a third term.$1 a year crap was a loss leader and a scam.
